Energy Efficient

For over 60 years, Hunter Douglas has been creating and offering natural and appealing ways to harness heat and light. Nantucket window shadings help save energy at the window in the following ways:

Solar Heat Control: Nantucket window shadings help reduce the amount of solar heat that passes through the window, which is known as the Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC). The lower the SHGC, the more protected your home is from the sun’s heat in the summer.

Daylighting: With soft fabric vanes attached to sheer fabric, front and back, Nantucket window shadings beautifully diffuse the natural light while bringing it deeper into the room. You can also direct that light where it’s needed most by tilting the vanes. By drawing natural light deeper into a room Nantucket window shadings reduce your energy needs for electrical lighting.

Note: For optimal insulation and solar heat control, select a light-dimming fabric and keep the shading fully lowered with the vanes in the closed position to block heat, or raised to allow it in to warm a room. Also, white and light-colored fabrics improve a product’s solar heat control. For optimal daylighting, adjust vanes to the open position.
